Facebook introduces updating of video profiles - The Wonderloop way!

Facebook has always been one epic example for constant growth in terms of changing the interface with the demand of modern times. Be it the philosophical changing of the design of the Friends' List icon, or the changing of something as trivial as the stickers available, Facebook has been very quick in updating changes, as soon as the demand arises or the people get bored or find the handling monotonous.
However, Facebook was also pretty stingy in introducing the 'Dislike' button, which people have been demanding for a long time now (for 'whatever' be the reason!). And the reason as to why has been pretty mysterious, but the view is obviously to make Facebook more people-friendly, and curb critical views. These reasons could also well be the basis for people still going crazy after Facebook.
But the very recent development has been an idea in the minds of the people for so long, but now it is a reality. Facebook recently launched an update that lets people upload a 7 second video that describes them, rather than using the monotonous profile picture. This, if you observe, will certainly give rise to a lot of viral conceptions in the coming times. This could also be similar to a Vine video where more funny videos are made everyday.
This could also be compared to a video-profile platform, that hasn't been all that famous, but could be compared to this aspect. But Wonderloop isn't a social media platform like a Facebook or Twitter; it is more like a tool, that can be used by people to describe themselves (or make up a quirky personality type for yourself!), in the form of a 20 second video clip.
Wonderloop has always been a very effective tool in updating information about ourselves for people to see. And, this is not all about just being active on the social media. It covers a lot of circles, like friends, work, and many other such groups. So, basically, it aims to create the best first impression for people to see, and then you cannot follow it up with many such and better impressions.
With its headquarters in Mountain View, CA, it was found by Hanna Aase, in the year 2013. It went through subsequent funding rounds and most recently, managed to grab a funding over Snapchat. Wonderloop was featured in Forbes magazine, US TODAY etc.
The vision of Wonderloop seems to be pretty simple, and could be based on the core of Facebook or Twitter: "creating a search engine of what life is about: people." And this seems to be right, if you take into account the Wonderloop app's facility which lets people search for other people on the net who have uploaded similar video profiles on the world's first video sharing platform. But one drawback could be that it is an app especially developed for iPhones and let's just face it, not all of us own an iPhone.
This facility provided by Facebook to its billion plus netizens, could well be the nest big thing down the block. Just wait for sometime, and you will see the mad crowd uploading profile videos of them speaking about, well, themselves! The best thing about this will be that you will be one of them!
